Norman Parkinson (1913-1990) was one of the Twentieth Century’s most celebrated fashion photographers. He pioneered epic storytelling in his images, taking portrait and fashion photography beyond the stiff formality of his predecessors and injecting an easy and casual elegance into the art. His photographs created the age of the supermodel and made him the photographer of choice for celebrities, artists, Presidents and Prime Ministers. In 1956, Parkinson travelled to India for British Vogue, and in doing so produced an exceptional body of work that has earned its place securely in this history of fashion photography. Working with Elizabeth Smith, the Norman Parkinson Archive in London and the Tasveer Gallery in India, Cara’s director co-curated the travelling exhibition Pink is the Navy Blue of India, and publication of the same name.
